Liver cancer number is skyrocketing, are you at risk?

A recent report released by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that liver cancer is on the rise. From 2000 to 2016, liver cancer death rates increased 43% for American adults, causing liver cancer as a leading cause of death to soar from the 9th to the 6th nationally. On the surface, these numbers might not seem so relevant to NASH or fatty liver disease patients (NAFLD patients), but recent researches show that NAFLD is becoming a global epidemic that would affect 50% more patients by the year of 2030. And NASH is gradually becoming the leading cause of liver transplant as early as 2020. If it is left untreated or not managed well, it might progress into liver cancer, which is the most serious stage of liver diseases.


Liver cancer death rates

From the report, there’s an increasing trend of liver cancer death rates in adults aged over 65 or above. For adults aged 55-64, the trend has been increasing since 2000 but remained stable through 2016, however, it has to be noted that the number of deaths is still high, having a record of 19.4 deaths per 100,000 population.


What are the reasons behind?

People are directing the cause of the sudden rise of liver cancer number in the past decade to the affluent way of living in the current society. Modern living style includes, but not limited to, an over-intake of calories and binge drinking.


Fibrosis is the main culprit

It is always important to bear in mind that fibrosis is the key cause of liver disease progression. While an excessive amount of nutrients and alcohol does contribute to obesity, it’s the constant liver cell damage that progresses the inflammation of the liver. If it is not controlled or managed properly, the liver will inflame over and over again and the liver cells will no longer be able to repair itself.


How can I manage fibrosis the right way?

Eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular exercises can help. At the same time, limiting alcohol intake is also beneficial to recovering liver cell damage. On top of all these, fatty liver disease and NASH patients could also try out anti-fibrotic therapies so that the process of fibrosis can be controlled and managed in a more effective way.

For years we have known that there is a strong link between obesity and liver cancer, and it is possibly due to the high fat content in the body. And because of this, people with obesity are often considered at risk for liver cancer. A recent research conducted by Monash University and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Australia confirms that obese people are at risk for liver cancer, but based on an entirely different reason.   The new finding
If you know someone who is diagnosed with more advanced stages of liver disease, then you might have heard of the term MELD score. MELD refers to the model for end-stage liver disease. It is a scoring system that shows how urgently a patient needs a liver transplant. Since MELD score is often used as a way to predict a patient’s prognosis, many patients try hard to improve their score in the hope of better health. Before we move on to the discussion of how MELD score

The liver carries out essential functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making new blood and other vital nutrients. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function. Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver damage; it is often caused by chronic live
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l
Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
